|House Finch, Carpodacus mexicanus|
One reason I love this particular photo is that it was taken during one of the very infrequent snow storms of North Texas.

|Torresian Crow, Corvus orru|
This particular photograph was taken in Caloundra, Australia which is certainly a coastal town.

This was a lucky find in Brasil, located in the Atlantic Rainforest near Parque Estadual Turístico Alta Ribeira, more commonly known as PETAR.

|Two-spotted Ladybug, Adalia bipunctata|
Lucky for this ladybug, it was just a cold summer day in Wellington, New Zealand.
And here's hoping my own computer is back and running by tomorrow!

|Brazilian Wolf Spider, Lycosa raptoria?|
This particular spider, photographed in Cananéia, could possibly be the species Lycosa raptoria although there is limited information so the identification is not certain.

|The beginnings of a supercell storm|
This particular photograph was taken in a town by the Red River, an area known for tornados (frequent, but weak). If I remember right, a wall cloud did form a few miles later but no tornado. I did take this from a window on the fourth floor which accounts for the few spotty blurs.

During the winter, Snow Geese flock together and migrate south, stopping in areas such as Hagerman Wildlife Refuge. There they find wonderful green fields of grains and grasses that are specifically tailored for these and other migrating geese near the flood plains. The Snow Goose has two color morphs: snow white and blue. They had once been separated into two different species which is why the Snow Goose is sometimes still referred to as the Blue Goose.
